Welcome to the EPW-USA Website!
The 2014-2016 Executive Committee welcomes you to our website. We are Empowered Women Leading Business throughout the US and territories. We encourage you to peruse our pages to learn more about us. We are honored to have an affiliation with the International Federation of Business and Professional Women (IFBPW). Our network spans the globe and reaches women in nearly 100 countries.
We are proud to be able to share interests with women around the world and support one another. We focus on the needs of women and families - issues such as equality, education, environment, leadership, work/careers and more. We are reminded to celebrate the advancements of women in the US and worldwide, and to focus on the needs still to be met.
Also, participate in exciting educational webinars sponsored by our Virtual Chapter or one of many programs focusing on advocacy that our affiliate federations and chapters host throughout the year. See the Events page for more details.
We are excited about beginning a city-by-city project called Cities for CEDAW. Please follow this link to learn more about this important initiative to end discrimination of women in education, labor, finances, assault, trafficking and much more.
